Listen to Your Heart by Margaret Lake now £0.61

I've just reduced the price of Listen To Your Heart to £0.70 which Amazon has discounted to £0.61. I love that they do that. Here's the blurb. Thanks for taking a look.

Margaret

World War I - Lena Manning is barely 20 years old and already a war widow with a baby on the way. Her church takes care of her, gives her employment and wraps her in its secure world. When the bishop appoints a new pastor, a young, handsome widower, she is forced to seek other employment to avoid any hint of scandal.

Her new job as social secretary to the wife of a wealthy New York banker thrusts her into a seductive world of money and privilege. When the son of the house pursues her, he awakens feelings she thought long dead.

Can she survive his secrets or will fear send her running back to the security of her church and the pastor who waits for her there?

I'll tell you, when I was writing this, I wasn't sure which man Lena was going to end up with. The one who offered her a safe life in the world she was used to or the one who went through hell for her.

RE: Listen to Your Heart by Margaret Lake now £0.61

On some of the forums we're doing a Page 99 excerpt. Here's my Page 99.

Lena swore she hadn't taken a proper breath since the men left to look for the children. And it wasn't until she saw Gil coming out of the trees carrying Jackie that she felt her heart start beating again. She was relieved that Charles had the twins, but it was Jackie that she ran to. They hugged, they kissed, they cried as Lena carried her over to the bench where Alma had a wet towel ready to scrub Jackie clean.

Frances and Amelia were getting the same treatment until they protested that they were clean enough. They were hungry and thirsty and couldn't they please have a sandwich and a Coca-Cola?

By now, Charles was able to think clearly again, and he didn't like what he was thinking. “In a minute, girls.” He looked down into their wide blue eyes but wasn't about to be taken in by those innocent stares. “Just what were you doing with Jackie so far away from her hiding place?”

Lena was startled by Charles' question, but quickly realized that there was a story here. She hoped her baby was innocent in all this, but she also hoped the twins hadn't been up to mischief again.

“I'd like an answer to that myself,” Lena said. “Jackie, would you like to tell us why you weren't where you were supposed to be?”

The twins swiveled to look at Jackie, willing her to tell the story they had concocted. It wasn't so far from the truth. They were just leaving out the part where the twins were going to leave Jackie lost in the woods.

“Well, Mama,” Jackie began, taking a deep breath, “they found me right away and I was sad that the game was over. I … I wanted to go hide again, but we thought we'd go sneak around in back of the others and scare them.”

“That's when we got all turned around, Papa,” Frances added.

“That's right, Papa,” Amelia put in, “and we had to stay with Jackie and take care of her, you know, because she's littler than us.”

All three were looking earnestly at Charles; newly scrubbed faces shining, long-lashed eyes fluttering innocently. He wanted to look stern and parental, but these three little heart-breakers were undoing all his best intentions.
